  3. In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until very fluffy. 
  4. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

  6. Slowly beat in the flour mixture and buttermilk mixture into the butter, adding about 1/3 of each at a time and alternating between adding flour and milk. Careful not to over mix.

  4. Beat in the rest of the powdered sugar about 1/2 cup at a time alternating with 1-2 tablespoons whipping cream until the desired consistency and sweetness level is reached.
